Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Ko-oren is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Sederatus Lemaritus with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 14.522 billion Ko-orenites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sedes Regis. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The enormous but inefficient Ko-orenite economy, worth a remarkable 1,118 trillion Koronas a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,012 Koronas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, getting milk from the local corner store no longer requires donning advanced hiking gear, and Sederatus Lemaritus claims to be the epitome of family values. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ko-oren's national animal is the Dragonfly, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is various.

Ko-oren is ranked 4,115th in the world and 3rd in Atlantian Oceania for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 9,530.56 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
